progress on vulkan, passing conformance tests, is excellent. finding bugs
in the work done by companies with billion dollar pockets i find highly

i wonder, the MoU still has to be signed, and michiel still has to send it
to me, if these would be considered retrospectively as progress.  I will
ask him when the opportunity arises.

At the very least it is worthwhile updating the 3d_gpu wiki page, i can do
that tomorrow?
